My Latest Control Issue

dates are important

Recent weeks, while looking for the story in my story, I’ve also kept a journal of things encountered, insights gained, questions. These are short blasts of thought. I do it so I don’t need to keep track of everything in my head. It’s all there – noted, jotted, scribbled, and ALWAYS with the date next to the scribble.

What is it with people not putting dates on things when they write stuff? Aren’t they going to later wonder where it fell in the grand scheme of things, in the flow? I find old notes of appreciation with no dates and wonder, was this before or after that time I disappointed them unforgivably?

Oh, well. Another of my pet issues – needing to keep a reliable account. I spend a great deal of time masquerading as a person who does not care about these things, though I never admit to it publicly.

My previous ongoing control issue has to do with parking spots.

Have a good day, write something and do your best to choose good responses!
